abstract
HTTP adaptive streaming was introduced with the general idea that user agents interpret a manifest file (describing different representations and segments of the media); where-after they retrieve the media content using sequential HTTP progressive download operations. MPEG started with the standardization of an HTTP streaming protocol, defining the structure and semantics of a manifest file and additional restrictions and extensions for container formats. At the same time, W3C is working on a specification for addressing media fragments on the Web using Uniform Resource Identifiers. The latter not only defines the URI syntax for media fragment identifiers but also the protocol for retrieving media fragments over HTTP. In this paper, we elaborate on the role of Media Fragment URIs within HTTP adaptive streaming scenarios. First, we elaborate on how different media representations can be addressed by means of Media Fragment URIs, by using track fragments. Additionally, we illustrate how HTTP adaptive streaming is realized relying on the Media Fragments URI retrieval protocol. To validate the presented ideas, we implemented Apple's HTTP Live streaming technique using Media Fragment URIs
